Bellowing Texas pastor tries to spoil Christmas for kids at mall — and angry fathers shut him down

Published

A Texas pastor upset children and angered parents by going into a shopping mall and bellowing that Santa Claus is not real.

David Grisham Jr., who leads Last Frontier Evangelism, went to a mall near his Amarillo home and started shouting at families who were waiting in line to see Santa Claus, and both he and another shopper recorded his rant on video, reported Friendly Atheist.

“The man you’re going to see today is just a man in a suit, dressed up like Santa, but Santa does not exist,” Grisham says in a video he posted on Facebook. “Parents, y’all need to stop lying to your children and telling them that Santa Claus is real when, in fact, he’s not.”

One parent asks him to go away and another asks him to “chill out,” and Grisham’s video catches several children gawking at him as he tries to spoil their Christmas celebration.

“When you substitute the lie of Santa Claus in the heart of your child for the truth of Jesus Christ, you are bearing false witness against God,” Grisham says. “Don’t lie to your children and tell them there’s such a thing as Santa, when you know in reality that there are no flying reindeer, there is no workshop at the North Pole, there is no elves making toys, that you buy all the gifts and put them under the tree.”

A parent walks over to Grisham, who has previously posted videos of a firing squad “executing” Santa Claus, and tells him to leave the mall, saying he’s upsetting children and bothering families.

“Quit talking this mess, you understand me?” the man says, as Grisham tells him to keep his hands to himself. “Now stop. I’ve got my kids over there, we don’t need you coming over here and blabbing whatever the hell you’re blabbing. Now go on — go. Now.”

Several other men walk over to the confrontation as Grisham complains that he’s just trying to tell the truth.

“That’s not your decision to tell my kids what’s the truth and what’s not,” the father says.

The other men agree, telling Grisham that he’s got no authority to tell their children anything.

“What you are doing is a sin,” another father says. “There is a Santa.”

‘Washington is no longer functional’: Brian Williams admits he’s sad to report that ‘our government is broken’

Published

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on Tuesday reported that America's federal government is broken.

"This was day 908 of the Trump Administration and while there is no joy in it, one way of summing up today is this: Our government’s broken, our politics are broken, Washington is no longer functional, and the cracks in our society are deepening," Williams reported.

"Much of this day was taken up by the discussion of racist statements by the president. Then tonight came the news that had so many people thinking back to when we were different, the death just tonight of retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens at the age of 99," he said.

Trump ignored being condemned by Congress and instead praised Republicans on Twitter for defending his racism

Published

President Donald Trump celebrated on Tuesday night despite the House of Representatives having voted earlier in the day to condemn his racist statements.

By a final vote of 240 to 187, Congress voted for a resolution saying, "Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.”

The resolution said Congress “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.”

The tortured madness of Donald Trump: It’s clear the president is out of his mind

Published

Where’s Shakespeare when we need him? Only the Bard of Avon could do literary justice to the tortured madness of Donald Trump, who fluctuates between petulant self-pity and weird self-praise.

His brags are especially weird because they usually involve achievements he hasn’t made. It’s as though his saying something makes it true — even though everyone except his most naive devotees can clearly see that he’s either hallucinating or lying. In June, for example, at a rally launching his reelection campaign, he retrumpeted an old campaign promise to “drain the swamp,” assuring the adoring crowd that “that’s exactly what we’re doing right now.”
